Where should I post best news about NASA space walks (today Jan 6 and Fri Jan 13) ?

    What is the best way to spread the news in the forum about NASA's space walks? ... one today [Jan 6] (just ending) and one on Jan13 ... (Refer to NASA TV).

    Maybe mechanical engineering with an aerospace prefix.

    That's a good idea. What about Astronomy and Astrophysics with the same prefix?

    BTW the two astronauts are just back in ISS after ~6hrs 12'. Next walk next Fri.

    There is no aerospace prefix in the astronomy and astrophysics forum.

    Spaceflight has always a been between the astronomy section (because it happens in space) and mechanical engineering (because it is about machines going to space). Other spaceflight-related threads are in mechanical engineering as well.

    Ok. Thanks. (I haven't checked the prefixes yet.)

    I'd say throw it in the Astronomy/Astrophysics forum.

    Would it be accepted?

    I don't see why not. It's space related.

    Ok, thanks Drakkith. I will probably decide tomorrow between the two.

    I just put it in Astronomy/Astrophysics a few minutes ago.

    Do screen shots work on PF?

    They should. You'd just upload them like any other picture.

    But sometimes they do not open for others ...

    If there's an error with the forum software then you'd have to take that up with Greg. In the meantime, you can upload the picture somewhere else on the web and insert it using a link.

    I haven't tried yet, but generally, I think, screen-shots have problems (once the original photo file and app is absent). We'll see. Thanks Drakkith!

    I'm not sure what you mean. Are you having a problem with people viewing the image after you uploaded it? Or is the image itself often wrong? Or what?

    Sometimes both

    Odd...
    I think that's something you should take up with Greg if it continues.
